7 Tips To Spring Clean Your Beauty Routine

7 tips to spring clean your skin with island skincare

7 tips to follow to keep your skin healthy and happy!

1 Throw out all old makeup and cosmetics that you don't use. Mascara, blush and eyeshadows can irritate the skin and cause breakouts if they are past their usage dates. Mascara is 4-6 months after opening. Powder based products is 2-3 years usually. Throw last year's sunscreen out, it will cause breakouts if applied to sensitive or problem skin.

2 Clean your make up brushes with our Aurora  Facial Bar. I love this one for cleaning my brushes weekly. I rinse my brushes thoroughly then wash them with my Aurora Facial Bar by rubbing each one gently on the soap bar. Repeat and rinse until brushes rinse clear. 

3 Use our Botanical Sanitizer to mist on your brushes after each use to reduce bacteria. 

4 Check your product supply to see what you have in consumable supplies and products so you don't overstock. Remember most products of natural origin have a 2-3 year shelf life. I store all my products in a drawer to prevent oxidation of products. Cool dark dry storage is a must for your products. You can also store some products in a refrigerator.

5 Double cleanse and use toner to keep skin clear and hydrated. Our Aurora Facial Mist is an aloe and wild rose based toner with liquid moisturizing properties. I spritz it on throughout the day. We love cleansing with our zero waste


6 Don't over moisturize. My go to is the Aurora Mist, Serum and Rose Petal Eye Cream + Labrador Tea Day Cream and or Firming Cream through the change of seasons. I love using the Sleeping Masque at night to keep my skin optimally hydrated. Apply sparingly these products are waterless, a little goes a long way. 

7 We can't stress enough to use a hyaluronic acid based eye cream. It plumps, brightens and can also be used on areas that have fine lines and expression line like around the mouth. It is light as air and absorbs quickly so your skin looks glowy... but not too shiny.
